Our Philosophy

Urbano Village was born in response to this little girl, 

living in this humble abode.


She lives in the city of Phnom Penn, Cambodia & calls its largest rubbish dump her home. With no help from her government, her future isn't bright, but thanks to an aid-funded school on the edge of the rubbish dump, she & her friends (known as the rubbish dump kids) get to go to school where they given a daily shower, uniform, education & a weekly bag of rice for their family. Despite having very little, the joy in that school is awe-inspiring, & we want to spread it around. 


In fact, we want everyone to have a piece of it; to live in a world where we're all valued above profit & the bottom line. At our heart is the belief:

"I may only be one person, but I can be one person who makes a difference."


You & I have a super power & it's called 'consumer power'; & each day we make choices about how to use it. And everyday big business & governments make decisions based around how you & I spend. Urbano Village provides you with a village where you can use your consumer power for good with maximum impact; to create a brighter future.
